Fabulous place with sailing, boat rentals, small canal boat cruises, lakeside cafes and a central fountain. Beautiful in a Wilhelminian city park sort of way, but modern and relaxed .

This beautiful lake is surrounded by walking and biking trails that are frequented by walkers and joggers. This lake has sailboats and in the afternoon, crew teams. It gets crowded in the afternoons so if you don’t like crowds I’d head out there in the...More
